The person you will be closest to - at least in terms of proximity! -
is your roommate. Some roommates will become lifelong friends; others
may never have a chance to see each other again after their university
experience. Either way, your roommate will be present for your good
times and your bad times.
A strong roommate bond is based upon consideration and tolerance. By
that, we mean you respect your roommate's needs (and vice versa) and
learn to overlook, or maybe even appreciate, your roommate's
Communication is very important. Early in the semester, sit down with
your roommate and talk about issues that are important to you. Is it
okay to use your gaming device when you are not there? Can you use space in
your roommate's refrigerator? Your community adviser (CA) is also available to help in
setting up a roommate agreement or in mediating disputes.
